Kokanee WIll Begin Showing Up to Spawn

Lake Of The Woods - Klamath Falls, OR (Klamath County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fishing for trout will be slow. Kokanee will begin showing up near the resort to spawn. Large brown trout will follow them.

Fishing will be fair for many of the warmwater species in the lake. Fishing for brown bullhead is probably your best bet. Fishing for largemouth bass along the shoreline docks, large wood and lily pads can be productive. The lake is dominated by stunted yellow perch. Very small bait and hooks will catch these fish.

Due to the warm water along the shoreline most trout will move to colder and deeper water. If you have a boat you’ll find most trout holding at 15 feet. Getting your lure down to the trout is key to catching them. Try trolling larger spoons for these trout.
